Thank you!! @ Carrieandsam @@linaco80

 

I ended up going with the spa for hair and make up. The trial went well and I was very happy with the results on the day of the wedding too. However, if I could do it again, I would have gone with an updo ( not their fault of course!). I have naturally curly hair and although it wasn't that humid, the wind and heat definitely caused my hair to frizz and bit.  I would request Angeles as she seemed to be most experienced. She was really sweet and was happy to make any changes I asked for.

They looked in our bags but didn't ask for receipts. They said they see brides all day everyday. They understand.

With the paper lanterns, you don't need to put lights in them if you do string lights on the posts. They will hang them so you just provide the lanterns.

@@prater0420 that's exciting! What day are you guys going down? I've been searching Amazon and found some pretty champagne and Ivory colors:

I figure with the Ivory I'll def have some left over material and am hoping that I'll have ENOUGH material with the champagne, but I think these two colors are really pretty and soft together! Everyone feel free to let me know what you think! I'm terrible at making decisions on my own, haha!

I'm looking for Ivory as well, I am sticking with just one color though.

Did anyone try bringing a makeup artist from off-site to the resort? Trying to figure out if there is a way around not having to use the resort spa, and bringing in someone else without having to pay the vendor fee.

@@LaurenR I decided to just go with one color, too. I want to keep things simple and didnt want to have too many colors going on. I think I'm going to order two of the panels I posted before.

 

@@raqpena How were the beaches when you were down there? I've heard a lot of reports of tons of seaweed from posters on TripAdvisor and the pictures people post make the water look pretty greyish. Not a huge deal to me because our Travel Agent warned us of that and we plan to spend most of our time by the pools but I thought I would get an opinon first hand! Congrats on your wedding, glad it was everything you hoped for! Did you guys go with a DJ? I'm also still deciding what I want to do with my hair- I have a veil and kind of wanted to wear it down. My hair is very straight and doesn't hold curl very well so I'm thinking of just doing beach waves in my hair.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
